Renting Rug Doctor but is there a cheaper shampoo alternative?

I have rented the rug doctor before and have been satisfied w/ the results. I am in an apartment and not willing to pay for more. It works great for the $20 rental. However, the get you on the shampoo, anit-foam, ect. Does anyone have a cheaper alternative? By the time I get all this, its not so cheap anymore. Is there even possibly something organic I can make or get cheap? I am having a baby in 3 months and do not want the linger of chemicals in the carpet.

Answer:

I use to rent rug doctors also but I finally bought one. I always use a half cap of tide with febreze laundry soap. You can get really any detergent you like. It will freshen and make the carpet smell great. Gain works well also. If you buy a high efficiency detergent, it will help with less sudsing but you should try the tide with febreze or the arm and hammer that has oxi clean stain fighters with it or tide with dawn scrubbers. It shouldn't harm the baby because detergent you wash clothes with. You could clean the carpet with baby detergent called dreft.

I use the cheaper shampoos from Lowe's or Home Depot. Have also used Tide with color bleach. Works great.
